The German soprano Felicitas Fuchs studied at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama with Ian Kennedy and Rudolf Piernay and was later accepted to the Young Artist Programme in Switzerland with Kurt Widmer. During her studies, she also benefitted from masterclasses with Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau and Graham Johnson before winning the 2006 "La Voce" Lied-Competition, held by the Bavarian Broadcasting Association in Bad Kissingen. Her operatic roles have included Gretel (Hänsel and Gretel), Clorinda (La Cenerentola), Pamina (Die Zauberflöte), Tebaldo (Don Carlo), Oscar (Un ballo in maschera) and Liù (Turandot). A versatile concert artist and committed recitalist, Felicitas has performed at such renowned venues as Philharmonie Warschau, Herkulessaal and Philharmonie in Munich, the Alte Oper in Frankfurt, UNESCO Hall in Paris, the National Centre for the Arts in Beijing and the Royal Albert Hall, London, and has been a welcome guest at national and international festivals including Kissinger Sommer, Mozart Festival in Augsburg/Wurzburg, Immling Opera Festival and Cape Classics (South Africa).
